How do I become a Tezos baker?
The Liquid Proof of Stake system in Tezos selects validators. The selection algorithm emphasizes random selection and a wide base of participants. Tezos differs from most other proof of stake systems and proof of work systems by the large percentage of coin holders hat participate in baking.
A Tezos baking operation requires setting up a blockchain node and having at least 8,000.00 Tez. Most investors find it easier and advantageous to share the rewards and delegate the closing duties to a professional company or group. When delegating, there is no freeze on assets and the rewards come as shared with the delegate. Rewards in the delegated process are like passive income or bank interest. There are no special efforts or requirements to receive the benefits of delegated baking.
